What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
"All of it was memorable in different ways as the culture is so different. We found the Peruvian people helpful and cheerful. We enjoyed Arequipa, the Colca Canyon and Lake Titicaca, along with all of the trips and transfers."GH, Keighley
Most Memorable Moment?: Perhaps looking down on Machu Pichu for the first time, or was it the ceviche for lunch as part of the buffet in the Sacred Valley, or maybe Buenos Aires( a mixture of New York side walks and Parisian Boulevards )or the tranquillity of the gardens @ L'Auberge Hotel. and not forgetting the splendour of the Basilica at CuscoAD, Cheltenham
“The food in Brazil and Peru was amazing. This was unexpectedly the best foodie holiday we ever had.”NV, Bethnal Green
"It is difficult to pick out just one experience from such a plethora of new ones. There was so much to see and absorb in Peru which was fascinating, but Machu Picchu must rate very highly in our list of memorable events on the mainland as must the whole Colca Canyon experience including the drives through the Highlands to Chivay."ND,
Most Memorable Moment?: Machu Picchu... does anyone traveling to Peru ever put anything else? :-)ME, Carlisle
"We saw some amazing scenery, the train was wonderful and Machu Picchu unbelievable."PS, Stanmore
Most Memorable Moment?: Machu Pichu probably the best experience but the train journey there was amazing (and unexpectedly so).TA, Edinburgh
Most memorable experience: “Probably visiting the islands on Lake Titicaca followed closely by HB train and Machu Picchu"TS, Birmingham
There were so many highlights, but Machu Picchu and climbing Huana Picchu and the whole Galapagos trip are the most memorable.GJ, Richmond
Most Memorable Moment?: Every step of the way was amazing... But Machu Picchu was undeniably the crown jewel of the tripJB,
Undoubtedly visiting Machu Picchu. Albeit have to give special mention to Soy y Luna, Colca Lodge and Antigua Casona San Blas, they made us feel very special. Finally the organisation and the guides were all warm and friendly and made us feel like family.RS, Northwood
Most Memorable Moment?: Getting to the top of Huayna Picchu.PR, Edinburgh
Most Memorable Moment?: The train from Cusco to Puno ... Best day by far. Plenty of time to relax and hang out with the family in very comfortable surroundings, fantastic views all they way. Also loved Lake Titicaca ... Again a great day.KH,
Highlight: Being able to recreate photographs at Sasqaywaman above Cusco of our relatives who came to live in Peru in 1910.CC, Bristol
Highlight?: The whole of the Ausangate trek - the best short trek we have ever done in terms of scenery and local culture with the added advantage of comfortable mountain lodges.AST, Berwick-Upon-Tweed
Highlights?: White water rafting on the Urabamba river, Pirahna fishing and the lake titicaca tour.MH, London
"It was the overall experience that was important and I keep finding myself recalling small details that were entrancing at the time and then got lost in the next bout of sensory overload. In the end, I'd say it was the fact that I was able to speak almost nothing but Spanish for the duration of my trip that gave and gives me the greatest pleasure. Partly this is satisfaction that I adapted my Castillian Spanish so well to Peru. More importantly, I know that I got much more out of my guided tours because my guides were able to convey subtleties in their own language that would have got lost in translation. This is one of the key pluses of the 'tailor made' model. Having mainly private tours and excursions meant that I rarely had to compromise on this, for me, key aspect of the experience."DM, Nottingham
"Obviously Machu Pichu was a highlight but Ollaytaytambo was impressive, Chinchero was lovely and Cusco was fantastic [we're looking into buying a house there!] the Vistadome, particularly with the staff on the return journey to Cusco, who put on a fashion show, music and dancing for us, which they genuinely seemed to enjoy too, was fantastic. I'd also really recommend Huaco Pacllano in Lima - I'd never seen a site like it before."SAG, Hythe
Highlight?: Seeing Machu Picchu for the first time, it literally took my breather away, Ineven had tears in my eyes it is so stunning.CE, Rickmansworth
Most memorable experience: "Impossible to pick! Machu Picchu, the floating Uros Islands, the Nazca Lines, and seeing the condors were all incredible experiences that we will never forget."KF, Reading
Most Memorable Moments?: Seeing a forest of Puyas de Raimondi near Huarez The trek from Ascobamba to Pillcocancha particularly the hospitality of the campesinos and watching cows being milked by hand. The visit to Tarmatambo visiting the ruins and being approached by a small boy called Kevin who persuaded his mother to give us lunch. Having a small face carved for me at Molinos near Jauja by a woodcarver. He wouldn't take any money.RM, London
Highlight?: Machu PicchuRN, London
Most Memorable Moment?: One day hike to Sun Gate/Macchu PicchuSF, Woking
The whole holiday was memorable and the flow and way it had been planned was excellent - we had a build up that allowed us to visit other parts of Peru, acclimatise and take in the history, culture and natural scenery before capping it off with the Inca trail and Machu Picchu!AB, Reading
“We enjoyed all the places we visited on our holiday in Peru, and the experience was enhanced by friendly and knowledgeable local guides. The spectacular scenery we saw will stay in our minds for quite some time.”MM, Newcastle Upon Thyne
It was all good and every location was special so cannot choose one in particular.BC, Beckenham
Most memorable experience: “Colca Canyon, Floating Islands on Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu without doubt. The journey from Ingapirca to Cuenca was very beautiful.”CR, Truro
Highlights:- It is difficult to pick out just one experience from such a plethora of new ones. There was so much to see and absorb in Peru which was fascinating but Machu Picchu must rate very highly in our list of memorable events on the mainland as must the whole Colca Canyon experience including the drives through the Highlands to Chivay.ND, Lewes
Most memorable aspect: “, Macchu Pichu and Peru in general, especially in Cusco. We bought ourselves an open top bus ride in Cusco which was excellent value and was well worth doing. We also enjoyed an excellent 4 hour historical city tour in Lima which was a good way to learn about the city.”DP, Watford
A fantastic travel company for Peru. Highly respected locally. The whole Itinerary was flawless with extremely professional local reps in Peru. I believe the Inca trail company in Cusco to be the best there!JD, Swansea
